British vlogger picks apart Nathan Rich's assertion that Taiwan is part of China
By: Keoni Everington, Taiwan News, Staff Writer
In his latest YouTube video uploaded on Sunday (April 26), Christopher Raymond Hall, who goes by the handle DREAM清醒夢LUCID, itemized and refuted each of Rich's claims in a video about China's supposed sovereignty over Taiwan. Hall started out by introducing Rich, an American and former Scientologist who now works in Beijing as a propagandist for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
In response to Rich's claim that "Taiwan is not a nation," Hall pointed out that Taiwan has its own currency, military, flag, president, and democratic legislature. After Rich claimed "Taiwanese separatists" were attacking the World Health Organization (WHO), Hall retorted that President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) has rejected the proposed "one country, two systems" framework, declaring that Taiwan and China are in fact "two countries, two systems."
Rich then went on to say that "Taiwan is not a country, Taiwan is not a nation, it is not a sovereign state. And that's not just my opinion. That's just a fact." In disgust, Hall said, "You may be OK selling your soul to the CCP, but I am not." [FULL STORY]
